WEST COVINA, CA (July 19, 2018) – Early Thursday morning, an infant was killed and a woman was injured, following a solo-vehicle crash on East Cortez Street. The identities of the people involved were not immediately disclosed by officials.
 
According to the West Covina Police Department, the crash took place around 5:16 AM in the 2100 block of East Cortez Street, near South Hillborn Avenue.
 
Authorities who arrived at the scene found a car damaged after slamming into a pole. Inside the vehicle, they found a 1-month-old girl injured and unresponsive in the front passenger seat. The infant was reportedly unrestrained in a child safety seat.
